Thank you Ian Sands!
This year we will be using SeeSaw to document our progress and write our reflections. We will also be using it for critiques!
What is SeeSaw?
SeeSaw is the app we will use to capture our progress and reflect on our final projects. If you've used Instagram, you'll have no problem with Seesaw. Just take a photo, add a Caption, and post it it Seesaw.
When do I SeeSaw?
We SeeSaw every Thursday or Friday (Depending on when your last class of the week is) to either show our work in progress or to present the final completed work of art. Post should include a photo of the work that was created that week along with a written caption.
